5 Nutritious Recipes to Add to Your Life

Over the New Year, The Soom Crew is committed to eating more intuitively and being mindful of the foods we consume. We’re swapping refined sugars and unhealthy fats with Soom Silan and Soom Tahini wherever we can. For more information as to why we’re making this change, check out our blog post “Eat To Thrive.”

With “Eat to Thrive” as our nutritional driving force, we’ve collected five of our favorite delicious and nutritious recipes we’ll be enjoying all year long!

Sweet Potato Tahini and Date Smoothie

Originally crafted by Andrea Bemis of Dishing Out Health, we slightly adapted the recipe to include Soom Silan. This smoothie is packed with nutrition from the sweet potato, to Soom Tahini, to Soom Silan. We were so curious for the nutritional breakdown of this smoothie. So, we contacted Charlotte Press, Nutritionist, MS Fitness Nutrition, to help us understand the health benefits. Not only is it full of nutrition and makes for a fantastic breakfast option, but it’s also incredibly delicious. If you’re looking for fall vibes all year long, make this smoothie.

Silan and Tahini Vinaigrette

While preparing for the launch of Soom Silan, each member of the Soom Crew had to develop a recipe utilizing Soom Silan. Although each of us enjoyed the recipes we made, Jackie, the creator of this dressing, blew everyone away with this simple, yet delicious recipe. Consisting of only 4-5 ingredients (depending on if you add tahini to add creaminess and healthy fat), it’s full of flavor and pairs incredibly well with so many proteins including grilled chicken, tuna fish, and salmon. Compared to other dressings, this vinaigrette is sweet and tangy, nutty and creamy, and is super nutritious thanks to the tahini, date syrup, and apple cider vinegar. Plus, it’s nut-free, dairy-free, vegan, and paleo, meeting so many dietary preferences. Next time you whip up a salad, we highly suggest topping it off with this dressing.

Silan Chicken Leg Quarters

These Silan Chicken Leg Quarters are simple and delectable. This recipe is unbelievably easy to make. The total time to get the sauce ready is 3 minutes. The total time for cleaning the chicken is 5 minutes. The preheating of the oven and cooking of the chicken take the most time. If you’re looking for a super simple (and healthy!) sauce to make for ANY protein, this is one to make.  (PS: if you’re looking for another super simple and easy topping for proteins, try just a drizzle of silan – and if it’s fish, a drizzle of olive oil, too).

Silan-Sweetened Gingerbread Overnight Oats

We contracted recipe developer and food blogger Flora & Vino to create this recipe for us. Try silan in oatmeal if you haven’t done so! Swap refined sugar or a different sugar substitute for Soom Silan when you go to sweeten your oatmeal. (You don’t have to make overnight oats, if you don’t want.) Not only does silan add a subtle sweetness, but it also adds a richness that pairs beautifully with the cooked oats! For a delicious festive-inspired breakfast, make these silan-sweetened gingerbread overnight oats! It’s absolutely perfect for an on-the-go breakfast. It’s packed with nutrients thanks to the oats themselves, chopped dates, pecans, Soom Silan, Soom Tahini, and protein powder (if you decide to add a scoop).

Tahini Brownies

One main point we want to make throughout our “Eat to Thrive” campaign is that we aren’t restricting ourselves from treats and desserts. We’re still going to eat a slice of tahini carrot cake or a good old-fashioned chocolate chip cookie. However, we’re adding nutrition to our desserts and utilizing better-for-you ingredients. That’s why we chose these tahini brownies. Slightly adapted from Ambitious Kitchen’s Tahini Brownies, these brownies are fudgy, cakey, rich, chocolatey, and ever-so-slightly nutty. Surprisingly, they’re made from wholesome ingredients including coconut sugar, coconut flour, maple syrup, and Soom Tahini. The level of deliciousness with only refined sugars from our chocolate tahini and only 1 tablespoon of coconut flour is mind-blowing. If you’re looking for a healthier treat compared to other options out there, make these tahini brownies.
